Due to the confusion of the signature of H. Lewis, two forums were started on the antiqueandthearts.com website by folks who owned pieces of his art trying to figure out just who the signature belonged to. I left my contact information on the forum and I received emails from a couple of collectors who had H. Lewis art. We cleared up the confusion using the signature I have on my Girl Playing the Piano painting.
I recently wrote back to the owners of the art work and asked if I could post their pieces. This post contains two of the landscape-type from Dave Kennedy in Seneca Falls, NY.
I believe both are pastels, with ornate frames signed H. Lewis. Dave tells me he has about seven of H. Lewis’s pieces.
It was good to know that others, who were not relatives, enjoyed Hubert art and that it still hangs in in people’s homes.
A few pieces of my great grandfather's work were always in display at our home growing up. In fact, every relative it seemed had his art hanging. One day I wanted to find out more about him, and it seemed there was no compilation of information in any one place, and there was some confusion about who H Lewis was. So I started digging and it led me to be the one to compile information from several different places, with a lot of the information coming from relatives who had stories handed down to them. I also searched records and collected art. Please fill free to contact me regarding information about Hubert Lewis.

Hi, I have been searching for information about H.Lewis for a long time. I purchased a picture many years ago, it is a favorite of mine. Thanks for the posting and information.
Hi Helene, I’m glad to know Hubert Lewis’s picture is one of your favorites.Since I also searched the internet for more information about my great-grandfather I understand the want for more.
I’d be happy to post a photo of it on this website if you want to send me a photo to my e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
